A lot of people don’t like buying clothes from eBay. Sellers don’t often provide accurate measurements, they don’t accept returns, and sometimes the items are just not what you expected. However, I don’t believe that this should bar you from trying to buy on eBay. You might be able to find something awesome, like I did with my “new” 1960’s ivy suit.
It’s been an odd spring here in Southern California. The weather has been going up and down; at the time of writing this article, the weather was at the low 70s! Might not be bad for you East Coast people, but it’s definitely weird for us!
Thanks to the cooler weather, Rajesh and I took this opportunity to experiment with both layers and ball caps. It’s not the newest of trends, but it’s definitely something new for both of us. How do you think we did?
It was committed by all the outfits worn by the gentlemen in this article.
Sweaters have been around for a long time. Today, guys mainly wear them two ways: as a replacement shirt (crew neck) or as a layering item for business casual (v-neck). Don’t get me wrong, sweaters are great! However, there is something about the styles and patterns of vintage sweaters that make them such an awesome piece for me. They go great with more formal clothes, to give you that smart, “vintage” look!
This weekend, Spencer and I went to Inspiration LA, a huge vintage gathering in Southern California. At the REEF in Downtown Los Angeles, multitudes of dealers selling vintage apparel, reproduction garments, and other crafts come together to present their wares to the public.
Valentine’s Day is this coming Weekend and it’s important to look good. Last time we explored the different outfits for different occasions. This year we’re going a little different. While we normally have a pro-tie stance, sometimes it’s best to go against the grain and ditch the tie. However, the lack of tie doesn’t give you an excuse to dress down! Here are some tie-less looks that can work best for any of your Valentine’s Day plans!
Lately, people have started asking me about how I wear my tie. It may not be apparent on my blog posts since I don’t post every outfit I wear on here, but comments about it mostly came up at work (I work retail). If you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s when both the front and back blade of the tie are visible and overlapping, and can often extend past the waistband of the pants. Sometimes it simply drapes downward; other times I prefer to tuck it in.
What do you wear when you attend a wedding?
Double-breasted is the answer.
Recently, I made a point to try out a MTM suit by Indochino, a custom suiting and shirt company started in 2007. I have seen other reviews of this service by Articles of Style, Dappered, and even the Young and Fine Gentleman. To try it out for myself, I saved up a couple hundred bucks and purchased a suit, made from the measurements I provided.
It’s been a while since we’ve done daily outfits, so here we go!
